The heart and soul of the Navarro team and the king of mat talk, Jerry, 20, is the biggest breakout star from Cheer, winning people over with his heartbreaking backstory, positive attitude and perseverance to make mat. And it's no wonder people want to know how they can help Jerry, who lost his mom at the age of 16.
"Since CHEER came out, several people have reached out asking how they could help me. In response my cheer moms reactivated the Gofundme that they set up for me four years ago," he wrote on Instagram, linking to the page that is close to reaching its goal of $50,000 to help continue his education (he has two more years) and cheer career.
And don't worry, Jerry is still on the Navarro squad for the 2020 season, also cheering for the world champion Wildcats from Cheer Athletics after being awarded a $10,000 scholarship to study at the University of Louisville, posting a photo of himself in a Louisville cheer uniform in the fall of 2019.
"Back and better than ever," he captioned a pic back in a Navarro uniform on Jan. 11, adding he was ready "for round 3 with my family."
